Interlibrary loan (or ILL) is a free service through which Swisher Library borrows materials from other institutions on your behalf. No library can own everything, so ILL is designed to supplement library resources through relationships with other libraries around the world.
Our course reserves collection is a collection of class textbooks and readings provided by professors. Materials in this collection are checked out for use within the library for short periods of time. Course reserves are available during staffed library hours.
Is there an item you would like to see in our collection? Are there any databases you are interested in? Is there a particular journal you think we need? Swisher Library's vision is to inspire and facilitate academic excellence and a life-long dedication to learning through innovative programs, services, information resources, tools, and partnerships that prepare our students for service and success in a rapidly changing world. The Library seeks to acquire resources that support the university’s teaching, research, and public missions, in alignment with the Library’s collection development philosophy and vision.
